The Judge stars Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall. Hank Palmer returns to his childhood home where his father who is the towns judge is suspected of murder. As hank tries to discover the truth he tries to reconnect with his family. Duvall and Jr have great chemistry on screen. By the trailer you would think you would get a intense trial and that would be the entire movie. Sure you get the segments in court but the meat of this movie is Hank trying to reconnect with his family. The family scenes are really what makes this movie with so much emotion that that builds into the trial segments. It was nice to see Robert Downey Jr come out of iron man for a bit and get his hands dirty. The man can bring it. The only issues were the court scenes could have been more. There is also one very unnecessary subplot between Henry and am ex-girlfriend and those scenes took me out of the movie a little bit until it would pick back up in court or with Hank's family.Overall I really enjoyed this movie and i encouraged you to go check it out in theater's and I am going to give The Judge an 8 out of 10
